No, that is the natural wood colors.

I get a "cool space photo" vibe from those. Incredible stuff.

Wow those are absolutely magnificent grips Olympus. A 1911 isn't a 1911 without beautiful grips to accompany them. Just curious Olympus, do you apply your work on other materials? Ivories or horn for example?

I've down Ivory before, but I keep those for myself. Haven't tried bone or horn.

That's the best grips I've ever seen.
